I am an intern at Ascensions Community Center Inc. for summer 2011. It is a great oppourtunity for me to be able to intern at Ascensions because the staff are all friendly and welcoming. Ascensions helps give back to its community by Being a non-profit organization and giving quality therapeautic services and social initiatives to entire family unit. The Ascensions approach is Self-love, Self-efficacy, and Self-love. Ascensions take most health insurance policies and have a sliding fee available for those in the community that are uninsured. Ascensions want to see their community grow and are doing a great job at assiting the community with their therapeautic needs. I even want to continue to volunteer for Ascensions after my internship is complete.

I am currently interning here and I absolutely love this place.
The environment is warm, inviting and the staff here is friendly.
I love how they give back to the community and have a passion for reaching out for those in need. Here at Ascensions they really follow their mission statement
by helping family rise above past and current difficulties to a place of renewed wellness, competency, and stability.

When I first met Dr. Streeter, Executive Director of Ascensions Community Services, she was providing free therapy for families out of her home. Her tireless commitment to serving underprivileged families in need of mental health services prompted me to approve her first request for grant funding. Since that time I have had the honor of seeing Ascension grow from a fledgling start-up to a strong, fiscally responsible non-profit organization. There are few non-profits who are able to grow and thrive in such a short time period. Such growth can only be attributed to strong leadership and excellence in service.

Since being a part of Ascensions Community Services, Inc. for the past two years, I have witnessed clients and their families grow emotionally and develop greater relationships with each other. Ascensions is not the typical office setting. Rather, it is a calming environment that allows the clients to be more comfortable with their therapists and feel free to disclose personal information. Several clients have referred friends, families, and/or co-workers due to the assistance they have received after working with the therapists and staff at Ascensions. Lastly, the flexibility, excellent supervision, and willingness to assists in the professional development of the staff provided by the executive director, Dr. Streeter, helps to make Ascensions Community Services, Inc. a pleasurable work environment.

Enlarge the office building. The location is great; however, the growing number of clients may shortly exceed the available space.

As a consultant with Ascensions for 2 years, I have found the work conducted here to be of the highest value for the underserved populations with whom we work. The love for our clientelle conveys in which the customer service, care, and relations are handled. Of the many places that I could work, I feel like Ascensions provides the best environment for my work to flourish.

For three years, I have been working as a therapist at Ascensions and feel rewarded every day by the clients who take a chance, reach out for help, and leave feeling empowered. As designed by Dr. Streeter, Ascensions' philosophy is to approach therapy as a collaboration between client/family and therapist in an environment in which individuals can take off their "masks" and share their difficulties in a safe and inviting environment. As therapists, we are free to meet clients where they are, whether it is exploring past difficulties or focusing on current stressors. It is refreshing to work in an environment where the client and their needs come first.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

want Ascensions to obtain more non-profit grants.

I have been working with Ascensions for about a year now and cannot say enough wonderful things about this organization. The therapists and staff there really care about the work they are doing and the community they are serving. It's obvious when people want to be where they are and when they don't. Everyone who is a part of Ascensions is truly dedicated to the mission of community outreach and service. Dr. Streeter believes in going out into the schools, churches and other neighborhood organizations to really make an effort to bring the availability of psychological services to all members of a traditionally under-served community.

Ascensions is a class act serving a community in great need. The founder took a serious risk to establish the business when she resigned from her full-time position with a school for emotionally challenged children. Her passion was to facilitate the healing within the children and their families in a most impacting manner. She brought her expertise to Southeast Washington, DC and has been a beacon hope and an oasis for healing deep internal scars. Ascensions Community Services is unparalleled in the District of Columbia with respect to the specific services that it provides in a culturally-relevant manner. Organization can consider expanding services delivery locations to address adult and adolescent male issues. More male staff is needed.

I would suggest that they service men in the community in a more aggressive manner. This has remained a goal the Dr. Satira Streeter for at least 4 years. The challenges to meeting this goal are tremendous however her's has been doing the unthinkable. She will address this challenge soon.
